Most probably from jaycar. :unsure

Im sure they were just standard magnets , u'd just need ones that would fit nicely in the base and under the juke body ...
they were the size of 10c coins , weren't they ?

a few updates from the weekend, slowly getting there. looks like the inside will be alot different then mountains because we have such large speakers and amp among other things

so we will be putting the amp on the top part as it has alot more cooling

i need to get mine wrapped soon

Quick question, what sorta wood do you use for the top section? What thickness and breed of wood can be flexed over like that?

Thanks, looks lovely. I want to do a juke like that too :)

I too like it a LOT. How high is it? My only concern in the vertical screen but thats really dependent on how high it is.

given the size of the screen I'd guestimate it being about 4' high? :unsure Seems a little low for my liking too.

But still very nice work.

Brad

Yes to me if it's that low the screen should be angled somewhat.

yeah its 1.1m, on a table its head height. i made it smaller for portability and the fact it sits in my corner on show without being the only thing people can see
